What To Do If You Had A Trip And Fall Accident

What to do if you had a trip and fall accident

1. If you are injured, call an ambulance from the scene of the accident and go to the hospital. Don't leave the scene.

Far Too Many Pedestrian Accidents Keep Happening in NYC The latter part of 2019 proved to be just as dangerous for pedestrians as the earlier part of that same year. In fact, during one 72-hour period, six pedestrians were killed – four of them by commercial truck drivers. Despite the city’s efforts to decrease all traffic accidents and fatalities under the Vision Zero program, there appears to be ongoing fluctuation in the high number of people dying on New York City streets each year.  The only truly redeemable part of the 2019 statistics indicated that there were fewer traffic deaths for the...

Falling Object Accidents Expose Workers and Innocent Bystanders To Grave Risks

In New York City’s boroughs and beyond, falling objects repeatedly threaten the safety and well-being of innocent bystanders and workers alike. The region is one of the most densely populated in the entire country, and the prevalence of high-rise structures increases gravity-related accidents. Sometimes, larger objects like crane booms fall to the ground, resulting in injury and/or death. For example, in February 2016, a boom crashed to the ground in TriBeCa, killing a man from the Upper West Side. Smaller objects can also severely injure private citizens and workers, particularly when they fall large distances. Case Study: Falling Hammock On Tuesday, April 25,...
